Today I am featuring the home of Christine from Just Bella. Here's how she describes her style:
So here is how/why:
While most guys MrB's age were smoking, using drugs, drinking heavily and enjoying holidays to places like Thailand, he was saving for a deposit to buy a house. A perfect block of land in the perfect location popped up so he bought it. He was in his mid 20s.
While living with his parents, he was able to make extra repayments and therefore halve the term of his loan.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without his lovely parents who brought him up the way they did, which I am extremely thankful for.

And the fan is functional just in time for the hot weather, until our Daikin beast is installed.
See that cabinet with a million cables, well that is the reason why it took so long. I cannot believe MrB's patience and dedication. However, there is still another cabinet to do, and all the alarm, security cameras and keyless entry cabling/programming. But I am happy for now :))))

So I was thinking, wouldn't it be nice to have flushable toilet liners? Hopefully inexpensive too...
Are you sick of your "water efficient" toilet suite? Are you forever scrubbing?

Can't wait to say good bye to a cardboard box that our toilet suite came in, which we've been using as a computer desk for the past couple of months!!!! And after 4 years of living out of home, we will finally have bedside tables!!!!!
Can you tell how excited I am???? :))))
And last weekend I bought a bunch of face, hand and bath towels and 3 floor matts from their Lennox range in white. They are discontinuing them so had them for 40% off!!! I went to 2 freedom stores and cleaned them out. They didn't have much left in white but I ended up with 7 face washers, 10 hand towels, 3 bath towels and 3 bath matts. Very happy I was!!!
It's been exactly one year since that day I started this blog, and here I am in the same house, on the same couch, overlooking the same sky and mountains. I knew this past year would be something worth documenting, but I never could have imagined this. I still feel as if I'm living in a dream each day I wake up, and I just hope that feeling never fades... it's what drives me to work harder and reach even higher.
